Disability Travel Fund

UNSW is committed to achieving its aspiration to continuously improve its position as a leading research-intensive university in Australia.

UNSW values the contribution of all staff in meeting this aspiration. 

Making adjustments for academic staff with disabilities includes making funds available for travelling at the direction of UNSW in order to cover any additional travel costs incurred because of their disabilities.  

The UNSW Disability Travel Fund is managed by the Division of Equity Diversity & Inclusion and provides a contribution towards these additional costs.  

The Travel Fund is not a substitute for the standard funding arrangements for conference attendance, SSP or other research related travel provided by Faculties, Schools or Centres. Its purpose is to provide assistance with the additional travel expenses associated with accommodating a disability.
